Fury in Germany over $362,266 welfare payment to Muslim refugee with four wives and 22 cildren
First, let me assure you that this is not fake news. While this story is all over the Internet, the original source is the well renowned and respected Daily Mail, one of the UK’s best news resources.
The Mail tells the story of Ghazia A., a Muslim refuge from Syria who fled to Germany with his four wives and 22 children. Mr. A. is unemployed, which goes against Muslim tradition, as the article notes:
“According to Muslim tradition, a man is allowed to have up to four wives as long as he can support them financially.”
If the truth be told, when it comes to the almighty dollar sign (or, in this case, a dollar billboard), the government handout of $362,266 wins over tradition.
Here is another interesting quote from the article:
“‘I am practically always on my way to be with my family – yet I would gladly like to work,’ added Ghazia A. Back in his home country he used to earn money with his car sharing and car service business which covered raising his extended clan.”
Somehow I don’t think the “car sharing” income from back home would go far in Germany.

As for this journalist, I don’t want to soil my keyboard, so I will end this sad column with my personal thoughts, after which you can watch Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel, weave her spin on a problem she created.
My take is this: most of these refugees from the Middle East are young males who should be back home defending their country, just like the greatest generation of Americans did during WWII.
I don’t ever recall a time in the history of this nation when any American fled this country to a another land during a time of crisis.
In the military vernacular they call that desertion!
And now, here is Chancellor Merkel spinning a yarn for you.
